FUA-Florence University of the Arts

 

Two Years Profecional Certificate Visual Comunication

Program Overview
Visual Communication is the process of designing and delivering cultural messages and stories to diverse audiences through film, video, or newer digital technologies which are not simply techniques, but, more broadly, the defining elements of our culture and society.

This Professional Certificate Program is designed to offer students a flexible set of interdisciplinary theory core courses and practice seminars sequences seeking to develop new skills and knowledge while building a body of work and professional experience in an international learning environment.

This two-year program in Visual Communications gives students the opportunity to enter the global world of communications.
In the quickly developing sector of visual communications, technologies are constantly evolving and continue to offer a wide variety of creative outlets.
